WCMG Garden at Mount Juliet Destroyed by Flood Waters

The Labors Of Love Garden project headed up by Jan Littrell was destroyed by floodwaters last evening, Wednesday, 6 February 2019. The community garden is a project of the Wilson County Master Gardener Association and located on the banks of Stoner Creek at the Charlie Daniels Park in Mount Juliet. Photos of the destruction are included below.

For reference, the photo below shows a corner of the Labors Of Love Community Garden as it looked in September just a few years ago.

A Couple of Santa’s Elves at the Mic

These two were spotted at the Wilson County Master Gardener Association Christmas party on Tuesday evening, 4 December 2018. No word on whether they were naughty or nice, but you can look at one of them until he’s trouble. Thank you Rose Skaggs for sharing your photos.

WCMG Meeting / Chili Cook-Off – Tuesday, 5 February 2019

WCMG Chili Cook-Off
in the Education Building
Tuesday, 5 February 2019 @ 6:30 PM


On Tuesday, 5 February 2019, Wilson County Master Gardeners Bill Brooks will talk to us about controlling voles in the garden and lawn. We will also conduct our annual chili cook-off.  Can our reigning champion be unseated? If you attended last year’s chili cook-off, you know it won’t be easy. It never is among the members of the Wilson County Master Gardener Association.

If you have a good recipe and you think you have what it takes to tempt the sophisticated taste buds of our members, then don your apron, get to cutting and whip up a batch for our February 5 meeting. Make a crock-pot full, enough for everyone to get a taste. Also, please complete this online [ Sign-Up Form ] if you plan to bring chili. Here is the direct link to the sign-up form:


This form helps us keep up with how many plan to participate in the cook-off as well as know what other food items we still need.

CHILI-3And if you’re not making chili, maybe you can help by bringing one of the following items: grated cheese, sour cream, cornbread, crackers or corn chips, drinks or a dessert. If you can provide any of these items, please complete this online [ Sign-Up Form ] as soon as possible so that we’ll know what’s coming and what’s lacking.
